1959 Porsche Meissen Blue 356

I have never been a big Porsche fan however ever since we got the 1959 356 convertible in the Shop I have to say these cars are very cool. After stripping the Car down to bare metal we have totally restored and rebuilt the body to it’s natural beauty .  Lots planishing hammer work , Pullmax , hammer dolly shrinking stretching it came out amazing.

Started out like this and ended up like…. see below .

I think we should just clear coat it ?

But the Meissen blue will make it look as it should .

The repairs consisted of  repairing cracked hood  and rocker panels with multiple layers of carbon fiber cloth (damaged from trading paint with the competition) .
stress cracks in various body panels were reinforced from behind and repaired on the surface. Then the masking of the intricate 3 color paint scheme began.

New [Spare] body panels were also fitted  prepped and painted with the cars unique stars and stripes RED/WHITE/BLUE paint scheme, Staying true to the original vision of the cars builder Archer Racing. http://www.archerracing.com
